New trainee buyer, Freddy Bulmer

Freddy Bulmer

Freddy has joined the buying team as trainee buyer after working in Member Services for the past two years. Freddy had worked for an independent wine merchant in Yorkshire before moving south to take up a job with us initially as a Christmas temp. His keen attitude, knowledge of wine and experience of working in Member Services stood him in good stead when a position came up in buying.
